MARTINSBURG, West Virginia — Two New York residents face charges of illegally transporting cigarettes from Virginia to West Virginia.

The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office tells media outlets that deputies arrested 54-year-old Roy Brown and 20-year-old Donne Wilson on Wednesday night following a traffic stop.

The sheriff's office says a deputy stopped the Rochester, New York, residents' vehicle on Interstate 81 near the Maryland border after receiving information that they had bought a large amount of tobacco products in Virginia.

The vehicle was towed to the sheriff's office and searched after a warrant was obtained. Deputies found 160 cartons of cigarettes valued at about $10,000 in the vehicle's trunk.

Brown and Wilson are being held at the Eastern Regional Jail.
